‘You need to come outside now’: Police surround Bowdoin home in search of Lewiston shooting suspect

BOWDOIN, ME — A Bowdoin house was surrounded for hours on Thursday night as the manhunt for suspected Lewiston mass shooter Robert Card entered its second day.

Heavily armed officers converged on a house on Meadow Road to execute multiple search warrants, according to Maine State Police. AP sources say the home belonged to the Card family.

“You need to come outside now with nothing in your hands. Your hands in the air,” police said through a loudspeaker.

But hours later, after repeated announcements and a search, authorities moved off and it was still unclear whether Card had ever been at the location, state police said.

Card is wanted in connection with the mass shootings that took at least 18 lives and injured 13 people in at a bowling alley and bar in Lewiston on Wednesday night. He is considered to be armed and dangerous.

A shelter-in-place order continues for the town of Lewiston. School will also be canceled for the second straight day.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call police.
